Why is it that accountancy, arts/humanities degree are so popular when they dont pay well?
 
People whom major in these put priority in interest over pragmatism?

Will an SUSS IT grad earn more than them?

Accountancy not equal to auditor, although many of us do end up going big 4.

Those that go into banks / other MNCs earn much much more.

Even among those who went big 4, a good chunk go into deals, M&A, Corporate Finance.

Audit is really... :s22:

From what I see in GES

nus biz admin (acc) mean = 3020
ntu acc mean = 3063
smu acc mean = 3455

flat 3k pay is high? (except for SMU)

I am comparing to engineering and computing majors

So is it true that SUSS computing grads can earn more than acc, arts/humans grad from "big3"?

(btw I am not from SUSS, just curious)

Because accountancy degree can tan jiak. Can become chow auditor that people hate too. Lol

patryn33 14-09-2017 09:58 AM

is it EDMW

Kyoji83 14-09-2017 10:17 AM

It true. A poor MNCs use to have this problem when they want to hire Accountant but since majorly of good applicants are from Big4, their expected salary can match a Manager salary range. At the end, they get the cheapest 'quote'! =:p

chrisliu90 14-09-2017 10:48 AM

Probably because most people are not good in mathematics.

MrSinkie95 14-09-2017 11:30 AM

Singapore is a finance hub
